This is an Emergency Water Restriction Notice for North Kona District customers for Friday, September 1 at 3 PM.

The North Kona Water Restriction remains in effect. ALL residents in North Kona must continue to restrict water use to health and safety needs (drinking, cooking, and hygiene purposes). Civil Defense and the Department of Water Supply sincerely appreciates your efforts.

Repairs to the deepwells remain a top priority for the Department. The pump for Hualalai Deepwell is now on island and installation will begin immediately. In addition, water tankers and drinking water stations have been situated within the affected area for your use.

Due to your continued efforts to restrict water use, water levels in the tanks have remained stable. Therefore, limited hand watering of precious plants is now allowed. All other irrigation is prohibited.

For more detailed and up-to-date information, visit To report any observed wasteful use of water, call 961-8790.

This web page will be kept updated and you will be informed of any conditions that may affect your safety.

Thank you for listening, have a safe day, this is your Hawaii County Civil Defense.
